Corporate Adviser Magazine - Older employees require physical support more than mental support

The primary concern for employers regarding baby boomers in the workplace is their physical health and wellbeing, according to Grid research.

According to the research, employers believe baby boomers, the generation born between 1946 and 1964 (aged 57-75), have the least amount of stress and anxiety in their work, home, and financial lives. But employers are concerned about their physical health and fitness, with 42 per cent of employers expressing concern that their mature employees are living with long-term chronic illness or health concerns such as diabetes.
